A place “Where Hope Starts, and the Community Gathers to Share”. TOH serves meals 5:30–7p.m., Monday-Friday at no cost to the Morris County area.
With the Community Food Bank of New Jersey as our primary food supplier, the Table of Hope serves more than 300 meals per week. Other providers of food and produce include ACME, Trader Joe’s, Grow it Green, and local farmers. Our constituency includes homeless individuals, single-family households, and senior residents.
Dinners are also delivered to the sick and shut-in at local senior centers and a clothing closet, food pantry, blood pressure screenings, resource information and other services for specific needs are made available to guests.
For 2019 TOH served close to 14,000 meals and gave over 4,100 pieces of clothing. Our food pantry served over 1,500 clients. Our volunteers are our lifeblood and we couldn’t serve the community without them! In 2019 we had over 1,900 volunteers contributing 11,900 volunteer hours!!
As we expand to meet the needs in Morris County, we will need your support more than ever. We are in the process of getting our Mobile Food Pantry off the ground so we can reach approximately 1,200 more families across Morris County who are in need of food. We can’t do it alone! Donate today! Your gift makes all the difference!

Thursday Food Pantry
Every Thursday from 3:30pm-5:30pm we offer a Food Pantry service. We offer fresh produce from local markets such as ACME, Trader Joe’s, Grow it Green, and local farmers. We offer canned goods, pastas, sauces, beans and other non-perishables which are received from these local markets as well as the Community Food Bank of NJ (CFBNJ). All are welcome. To ensure the best services to our non-English speaking clients, we have bilingual volunteers to assist with shopping and any other needs. Clothing is also available during our pantry hours.
Mobile Food Pantry
Our newest project is our Mobile Food Pantry. A generous donor contributed a school bus that was wrapped with our logos and signage. We will be using our Table of Hope (TOH) Mobile food pantry bus to distribute food to several pantries throughout Morris County who are underserved and need assistance in getting food to those in need. Many pantries do not have the resources to pick up food form the Community Food Bank of NJ and get it back to the communities they serve. We will assist with this effort by picking up and bringing the food to those area pantries in need. We expect to reach 1,200 individuals and families in need.
Be the difference.
